What a difference one night can make! Kelly just called with an update of this morning's events. It was good to talk to him. After talking to Judy I was a little bummed that Deb's progression had slowed. (They switched off early this morning- so Judy was reporting on Deb as of last night.)
Deb had a busy morning. After a walk she was able to have her first real shower. Kelly said it was an emotional uplift for Debbie. She was able to wash the blood from her ears and hair. She also stood alone and brushed her teeth! Following all that, she ate breakfast. Kelly broke her toast into small pieces. She was able to eat it all and keep it down. She also had some orange juice and a little yogurt. Great accomplishments!!!
I remembered to ask about the air pockets in her head this morning. Kelly says as far he knows they are all gone. Good news! The right side of her head suffered the most severe damage in the accident. Consequently, she still has some vision, hearing and numbness trouble on the right side. Her arms and legs have good feeling and work well. Over the last few days, Debbie has had significant improvement in her walking and speaking abilities.
She has a test this morning with Rehab. They will test her emotional and physical levels. We hope she continues to have a great day!
